“3 part series on survival sanitation”
That is just sad. lol.
Isn’t it just easier to poop in the hallway of your apartment complex?
everyone needs a 30,000 gallon septic tank. :p
Or, if you are one of Obama’s people, just go sh*t in somebody else’s hallway or alley and let them deal with it. < / sarcasm >
Too late. He won't be up for election again.
Buy plastic disposable gloves now. When water is scarce, washing one’s hands properly may be difficult.
Humanure can be mulched. The secret is to have a lot of greens. The additional greens will get hot enough to burn off anything.
Dead animals were mulched this way for generations.
There are numerous ways to build a composting toilet on the net. We have emergency 5 gal buckets handy, and even a toilet seat that's designed to sit on top of a 5 gallon bucket. We put up a tall emergency mulch bin away from the house for this type of mulching just in case.
Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
We used rocket pods half burried in the dirt in RVN as urinals, but maybe PVC pipe might be more available here. The old slit trench worked fine for the sit down stuff.
Fling it at every liberal who passes by.
Dump it on the White Hut lawn...
HUMANURE composting toilets. The best way to cleanly dispose of poop. It’s online, I’ve seen it work on a small city lot, used it myself out in the country, it WORKS. Just need buckets and some composting materials - dirt, leaf mould, chipper shredded stuff, sawdust (raw wood, not kiln dried lumber, microbes aren’t there).
Trench latrines and cat holes work well, used ‘em both for long periods of time, it composts fast when done properly.
A few pointers that help things out in some situations.
The US Army came up with a neat technique to dispose of most urine apart from feces. Just get a long section of 5” diameter PVC pipe and bury it in the ground at an angle so that one end is waist high. By keeping most of the urine and feces separate, you significantly reduce the volume needed for a sealed waste container.
Quicklime (calcium oxide) is superb stuff for sanitation, both for feces and human remains. It strongly helps decomposition and kills lots of germs while reducing odor. Keeps down insects as well.
For the people in concrete cities like New York, if you forget these proper ways to deal with waste, or fail to prepare, then at least remember this better than nothing, compromise.
Use the ubiquitous plastic grocery bags from the supermarkets, put them over a five gallon bucket, or over a little waste basket from the bathroom or bedroom, or a big cooking pot, use it, tie it shut and pitch it into a garbage bag until that is full, then seal that.
A couple of weeks of that will stink to all get out, but at least it is separate from your environment, and can be disposed of when garbage service is returned.
Actually, it's good advice. I didn't think about the flies and animals. The water I part I did, but that's obvious.
